About Cleopatra

Η Κλεοπάτρα Κομνηνού κινείται αθόρυβα στην πόλη. Κοιτάει ψηλά τον ουρανό και θαυμάζει την ομορφιά της φύσης. Της αρέσει η μουσική, η ποίηση και τα βιβλία. 

Θα την δείτε να φοράει πάντα ακουστικά και να ακούει μουσική στο μετρό. Συνήθως χαμογελάει ακόμα και όταν οι περισσότεροι είναι σκυθρωποί.

Ασχολήθηκε με την ποίηση από νεαρή ηλικία και όταν ένιωσε έτοιμη, αποφάσισε να γράψει το πρώτο της μυθιστόρημα. Τον τελευταίο χρόνο έμαθε περισσότερα για τον εαυτό της, μέσα από το ταξίδι στο μαγικό κόσμο της γραφής.

Cleopatra Comnenos

As a child, Cleopatra Comnenos was a dreamer. Her vivid imagination fueled her poetry about love and broken hearts. Originally, her goal was to become an acclaimed soprano or even a surgeon in order to save lives.
Destiny had other plans for her. While her peers were studying, she was constantly working, her writing being the only salvation when she was stressed. When her quest to pen her first Greek novel stalled, she took the time to reevaluate priorities until she was ready to tackle the quest.
During her time of self-discovery, she came to believe that Muses do exist. Their divine intervention coming in the form of Cavafy’s poem Ithaca, and the inspirational voice of the tenor Frangoulis. 
As time passed, she continued writing poetry expressing her thoughts about love and the pain a rejection gives to a human heart. 
When the time was right she started writing again. Constantly experimenting with plots, characters and words. 
In the end she found her true calling. She realized that no matter what, she was doing in her life, she wouldn't stop writing. These days she can be found penning her first Greek novel, while her mind plots the creation of her first English work as well.
